FACE aims to standardize approaches to bring open standards software to avionics systems.
V3-717 DO-254 Safety-Certifiable Graphics Processor with AMD Radeon E8860 GPU
Digital Cockpit Flight Display Demonstration: The Open Group Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Solution
Building a Primary Flight Display Solution for FACE
Wind River, Ansys, CoreAVI, Curtiss-Wright and RTI have collaborated to create a solution stack that enables a digital cockpit flight display with touchscreen capabilities for a FACE solution. FACE is an open standard that is required by defense systems to provide a standard for interface interoperability.
